Get up close to ancient etchings and the ever-changing colours of Uluru’s surface. The 10k track circumnavigating the sacred rock, is flat and well-marked, traversing through lush foliage to acacia woodlands and bloodwood trees, sun-scorched desert and waterholes.
This walk will take three to four hours and is one of the best family hikes in Australia. Book an Aboriginal-guided hike or start at the Mala carpark and walk clockwise around the rock, making sure to respect the local people’s culture and only taking photographs where allowed.

When: It’s best on the cooler months March – September and early in the morning.
